2:06 pm
a corporate suit or add considered them as a corporate leader but we're dissuaded from that option by the predictable and i trust challenges that if flip car were to be sold it would be a problem if it was sold to its biggest competitor and in other indians is the nation's largest cell phone service in india be hearty our tel was has posted an eighty two percent drop in earnings for q one pretext profits fell to the equivalent of eighteen million dollars down from close to one hundred million a year before air tel is reportedly under severe pressure from a new competitor reliance jiah low g.i. low made a big splash on entering the market with offers of seven month of free service and price points well below the previous industry norms after just a year and a half jai low is one hundred seventy five million customers competitors and other critics say gyros leavitt's support from parent company reliance industries to a twenty nine billion dollars in capital that was abused into jai low amounts to an

i competitive practices b. hardy r. tel is owned by suniel be hardy mittal while reliance is owned by rival mukesh bonny india's richest man. and volvo and general motors are working with amazon to create a service that will deliver packages directly to your vehicle customers would use amazon's key app for deliveries in thirty seven u.s. cities the new business stream is not only one of the most recent but most impressive inventions that combine automakers with emerging technologies volvo is also reportedly in talks with amazon to be able to offer customers with a package return service which would have all the customers placing packages in the trunks of their cars for pickup and hear discuss is about the best person one could imagine none other than the car coach lauren fix who joins us from our new york studio lauren thank you as always for being with us this is really something i imagine that rather than having a package sitting on your front doorstep out where somebody could steal it folks
2:08 pm
might feel a lot better having the package delivered to their vehicles seems like a pretty innovative deal of what are your thoughts. well i think there's good and bad to that i mean if you've ever had a package stolen off your doorstep which i have not thank goodness you can be very you know it's very intrusive so. i had this key program where they could actually get in your house and put the parcel inside the door the problem is people that have animals they could get out whether they be birds cats or dogs and that created some concern for some people so that obviously didn't apply so what do you do what if you put it in the trunk of their vehicle maybe you're at work the only problem is if you're in a locked in area or parking garage they can access that has to be in a public area and then of course if you're carpooling that could be a problem too so there are a few little things or i see you put the parcel in my trunk and as you walk away the amazon guy walks away i could break your window and steal your parcel so i think there is some negatives to it but i think there are some very positive so those people who don't want to carry large containers of toilet paper homes. good
2:09 pm
point and as bizarre as this whole. lorne it is that the only sort of new fangled service idea for innovative business dream out there also read the toyota is partnering with pizza to actually deliver pizzas in autonomous vehicles and ford is doing the same thing with domino's i mean are we just about to see the all deliveries autonomous vielka grow bob going to be the next one we see. that may be true i think the big thing that you're thinking about these autonomous vehicles and everybody's going that direction i think it's really important for all of us to take a step back we've had a lot of hold on the programs for a ton of the vehicles when you look at some of the studies especially recently and after the death that happened in arizona you're seeing that sixty some percent of people won't even ride in an autonomous car then you want to be on the road with them or millenniums are more into potentially riding in one still those numbers are
2:10 pm
low the take rate is low and we still have the big hurdles of hacking that we have not addressed and of course the attorneys they're very excited for this to get on the road because they know they're going to be made. a lot of money for manufacturers and everyone else in the insurance companies are a little bit concerned so i don't think we're there yet i think we're just in the testing mode but hey you want to deliver a pizza to me had become interesting but you don't get a tip then do oh it's a good point also well speaking of autonomous vehicles d.d. the right feeling service in asia that we reported on yesterday's going to mexico and competing with a lift in america they're going to do so driving a service also and they may be doing a public offering it's reported today seventy eighty billion with a b dollars for those of us who don't know much about d.d. give us a little background on one who they are what they are and what the future holds for them right here in the u.s. you might say getting in that seems to be like thermos and band-aid and clean exits very standard conversation but in china the word is d.d.
2:11 pm
which translates as beep beep so that has become their mainstay their big app and as matter of fact we're gave up trying to compete with them and they own about seventeen point seven percent of d.d. and d.d. is now being regulated by the chinese government because the fact is they don't have a yellow cab scenario like we do here in new york city what they're using is this app service because they have high speed trains and when you get to your destination you still have that last mile issue which means you get your train station but i need a mile to get to a market or to my home they're going to try and work an autonomous car so they can pick you up at the train station so when you purchase your ticket for the train you'll get a notification on your phone saying hey you're autonomous vehicle is there they're still going to have problems with infrastructure charging which is a huge issue especially as they work toward going pure evie and large cities they are producing nuclear power plants as quick as they can they put up last year and they realize that there is an electricity shortage the same problem that we have
2:12 pm
here in the u.s. which is going to be a hold up for any city to go all electric or in state for that matter lauren fix the car coach thank you as always for being with us sure appreciate it lauren thank you. now we move to wells fargo a bank which actually helped build the united states but has had some really enduring problems being back to two thousand and sixteen in the last several days they agreed to a one million dollar one billion dollars settlement with the consumer financial protection bureau and the comptroller of the currency related to claims of misconduct on auto and mortgage loans and part of a settlement includes wells paying restitution to its customers and the requirement to improve their compliance and management practices and here discusses david merkel of l.f. investments david thank you so much for coming in and spending time with us about her appreciate it so how in the world did they get into this mess i mean it's
2:13 pm
a big deal it's been going on what would what was it instigated by wealthy in for profit margins that were too high than could really be afforded by the business and as such they entered into various types of marketing schemes and there is types of products that were aggressive complex could fool people they accepted in their management practices they would look past things that were deviations that were that were in their favor and they would then scrutinize heavily the things that cut against current profitability and so you ended up with small people who got consumer loans from them getting the short end of the stick and they originally you know when you go back twenty sixteen they created all these added accounts they created savings accounts with right now ask for exciter and on the auto loans that i was just talking about it in the introduction a lot of those wasn't that they opted consumers their customers rather in two auto insurance when they did now support things like that yeah they they force placed
2:14 pm
insurance on these customers saying that they didn't have adequate insurance and when they did frequently have adequate insurance and that forced them to basically it would work you they'd. the interest in the next part of the payment to insurance and then to principal that may force a number of them into noncompliance with their loans they would then go and foreclose on the loans and sometimes repeal the car and some of these people would then have difficulties getting to their work and so you know this ended up creating losses of one hundred eighty one hundred eighty million dollars on that and on the rate locks for the mortgages that was another hundred million dollars where they basically because of their delay not because of the consumer delay forced the people to pay more in order to keep their loans locked at the interest rate that they wanted to have that was one hundred million not it and so they got is a billion dollar fine but it's not over i know they just asked for an extension was it from o c c n n extension for additional compliance so they still don't have
2:15 pm
every everything right yet it was and i money laundering and these are still some there are still some things going on with them with wealth management and some things with their commercial lending that they are still being looked into so these things go on these are complex institutions and in one sense if it's going to be complex you've got to create either the complexity to do the compliance or face more things like this again and again earlier in the program we were talking with the hill reportage about how. facebook could handle their circumstance and how star book box dealt with it and i put wells probably in the facebook camp of not dealing with things appropriately and it brings to mind i know they just had a shareholders meeting out in iowa did that tim sloan the c.e.o. made seventeen point six million dollars last year that's two hundred ninety one times the average person i mean talk about bad optics do you think he's safe i know
2:16 pm
i know that's not an industry standards totally out of line but given the circumstances there and it seems like a pretty bad deal i'd say that he's not safe if another thing happens you know one . two three strikes you're out but you know the thing is often these things happen because boards are you know they take what's given to them by the consultants and they think that every c.e.o. is above average since they're above average they give them slightly more than what the market south salary surveys will say and as such the next year when it comes up again will the market averages move up because everyone's done this so often some of these things happen for innocent reasons personally for me i vote down every pass a on pay thing that for my clients i don't see the value in c.e.o.'s getting paid that much it seems pretty crazy to me i mean there's a value but boy i mean two hundred ninety one times what your employers make thank you so much david really appreciated merkle thank you they left investor it's good to have you here he said it thanks part.
2:17 pm

2:25 pm
just to make it clear foreign money gulf arab money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on fake grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda. and we've asked for comment from andrea and associates which produced the film as well as the dubai based company lapis communications we haven't heard from them yet though the film was released last summer when gulf states cut diplomatic trade and transport type of account after accusing it of supporting terrorism something that has repeatedly denied back then the u.s. president sided with arab nations saying qatar had a history of funding terror at a very high level saudi arabia took the lead in the isolation campaign the kingdom's foreign minister is now warning the qatari government that it could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military presence in syria could start
2:26 pm
should finance the u.s. military's presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president lifts american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in qatar then the regime there will fall within less than a week the saudi foreign minister was referring to the presence of more than eleven thousand u.s. troops in cata he made the remarks after donald trump called for money and ground support in syria from his wealthy allies in the middle east however security analyst and former british army officer charles bridge believes it's the saudis who should be concerned over their friendship with washington. is using this issue as a stick to beat qatar and of course qatar has used its considerable wealth to attack for example in propaganda term saudi arabia both countries have been uncomfortable allies for some time certainly that by backing the syrian rebellion
2:27 pm
of course in this particular instance saudi arabia knows that qatar is not in a position to physically provide troops on the ground simply because its armed forces are small but of course they would like to see qatar finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks and self has said that without us in other words without the americans those countries would fall within hours or weeks or something like this instead this is a truce that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want to go deflect attention onto one another. thousands of people are making their voices heard across germany decrying a recent spike in anti semitism in the country a few days ago chancellor merkel admitted that germany is now facing a new form of hatred towards jewish people our correspondent peter oliver was at the rally in berlin. it was just last week when a nineteen year old syrian asylum applications attacked two jewish men in friends allow the area of
